From Riyadh to Beirut, fear of Syria blowback

February 28th, 2014 Comments off

This picture taken on Monday, Feb. 24, 2014 shows the burned car of Hisham al-Mughayar, 45, the father of the suicide bomber Nidal al-Mughayar, which was torched as well as the family’s grocery shop and four vehicles by angry residents after the news spread in the village that Nidal was one of the two suicide attackers who carried out an attack in Beirut near the Iranian culture center, in the southern village of Bisariyeh, Lebanon. Nidal al-Mughayar renewed his travel document last year and told his family he will be leaving Lebanon to settle in Venezuela where there are more opportunities but it turned out later that the young Palestinian man called his family from Syria and it was only then that they knew he has joined jihadis fighting to overthrow President Bashar Assad’s government.
